Alaska ProStart Invitational
February 9 - 10 2019  ·  UAA Lucy Cuddy Hall

On behalf of Alaska ProStart I am so pleased to announce the all new Alaska ProStart Invitational for 2019. We’re trying some new things this year and we would love to have you be involved. Please mark your calendars for February 9th and 10th, 2019 at UAA Lucy Cuddy Hall.

One of the most exciting things we’re doing this year is a career fair from 10AM to 4PM on Saturday February 9th, 2018. If you’re interested in having a booth to talk to high school and college students from across the state about jobs and careers in your company, you can register on this website! It’s free to participate and many of our students are excited and engaged in our industry already! If you have summer hiring needs, or just want to get your name out there to students who might be looking for a job, this is a great opportunity. The Alaska ProStart Invitational regularly sees 150+ students attend from around the state.

Secondly, we’re splitting competition up this year. Our annual management competition will be held on February 9th, 2019 and our culinary competition will be held on Sunday February 10th, 2019. Both events will take place in the Cuddy Center at UAA, just like normal. Registration to judge and volunteer for either or both events is live right here on our website! It is first come first serve this year, so if you or someone you know wants to judge a hot category(like tasting!), register as soon as possible!

If you have any questions about the new programs, or the website, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me. My email is prostart@alaskacharr.com. 

Thank you so much for your support and participation in this great event. We look forward to seeing you on February 9th and 10th at UAA!

Executive Director of Alaska ProStart
